Policy & campaigns
SOCIAL ECONOMY ALLIANCE
More than 20 social sector organisations have united with the aim of getting a ‘social economy’ higher up on all political parties’ agendas by the 2015 General Election.
Amid growing inequalities in the UK, it will lobby to help shape political policy that’s better for the economy and society as a whole, and emphasise the role businesses – particularly social enterprises and cooperatives – have to play, bolstering the economy and ensuring wealth is distributed more evenly across communities.
We continue to welcome new members of the Alliance.
ENTERPRISING COMMUNITIES COMPETITION
The government has launched the ‘Enterprising Britain Awards', a competition to find the most creative and successful local community in terms of creating new jobs, supporting start-up businesses and promoting enterprise. The Awards are being run by Young Chamber UK, which supports the work of businesses and public sector organisations to help develop the enterprise and employability skills of young people throughout the UK.
